We’re starting off the week with a new partnership, and we want to take this opportunity to remind you that if you have any suggestions of how to help us, you can let us know at email@example.com.
Silvia Fernández founded Chikyhobbit in 2010, sewing felt brooches firstly by hand, and later using a sewing machine. The result was, among other products, these sock monkeys, which support SOS Primates thanks to Silvia donating 15% of the profits for each one, to help cover the cost of feeding the orphans at Lwiro Primates.
She made the first one out of socks she no longer used (a way of recycling and reusing something which is no longer being used), and from there her sock monkeys were born, each one different and unique.
Her dream is to fill the world with travelling monkeys, and she encourages you to to take yours on your next trip when things return to normal and take photos of it, like the gnome in the film “Amelie”. She also wants to raise awareness about poaching, habitat destruction, etc. Many thanks, Silvia, for your beautiful gesture and for choosing our organisation. Welcome to our little primate family!.
You can get to know Silvia via her Facebook and Instagram pages (@chikyhobbit).
